Ambulatory Surgery Centers
Our experience as directors, managers and providers in every setting, from large tertiary care facilities to ambulatory surgery centers, gives SAS notable advantage on their competitors. Having successfully navigated the requirements of numerous accrediting organizations, our collective knowledge and experience has earned high praise in partnering with ambulatory surgery centers (ASCs) and individual surgeon offices.
We achieve measurable results and clinical excellence by working with each site individually. Improving case volume, handling logistics, managing revenue and ensuring reliable professional anesthesia coverage is the foundation that SAS is built. We have guided individual office-based surgery start-ups and existing surgical facilities in growing to record levels while providing safe, secure anesthesia and improved operating room efficiency.
Our local administrative team is available to address all business aspects for anesthesia or surgical flow for any setting. Our internal team and infrastructure handles:
Equipment and Supplies: We offer expert consultation and liaison with local, regional, national and international resources. Our commitment to value and efficiency begins immediately as our working relationship is one of resource sharing and value. Any one of our dedicated anesthesia providers is always available to visit your facility to assess your equipment and medical needs. We then offer a detailed proposal for procuring any or all necessary equipment, medications and supplies, including emergency preparedness equipment.
As your anesthesia services provider, SAS takes a collaborative and partnership role in establishing a system in your practice that reduces risk, eliminates inefficiencies, and optimizes value by streamlining processes.
Recruitment & Credentialing: We maintain our own database of anesthesia providers and can readily provide clinicians who are a good “fit” for your facility. We ensure compliance and complete a comprehensive credentialing process to ensure each provider possesses active current licensure and appropriate training and experience.
Scheduling: Our Scheduling remains individual to each center. We utilize sophisticated software to manage daily and monthly staffing availability, including back-up and vacation staffing.
Revenue Management: Our management group can help you capture additional third-party revenue for your facility. Our billing and collections contracted group proactively explores all applicable anesthesia revenue streams and optimizes contracting and billing of third-party payers.
